late payment on credit report even tho in credit.

First Timer

just had an email from credit report saying that a default from talk talk is going to be put on my credit file. I am in credit and this is wrong. I am in the middle of a mortgage application if this goes on my report it will affect my interest rates.

Has your account been in credit for 3 months or more?

my contract has finished. there was a fault on my line. wich couldn't be repaired. that was 4 months ago. so I was told not to make a payment until my contract ends to recieve compensation for loss of broadband speed as the tt manager said they can't give compensation untill the fault is fixed or contract ends. so as it couldn't be fixed I waited 3 months untill contract ends to pay final bill wich I ended up £12 in credit. so I would like the late payment taking off my credit file

Who told you not to make a payment until your contract ends?

a talk talk manager as I told him I wasn't happy paying for broadband that I'm not getting. the manager sent 4 engineers to fix this problem. it could not be repaired yet they still wouldn't finish my contract early. so manager said that he would put a hold on payments untill end of my contract in 3 months time. so this finished 16  Feb I got my final bill with compensation and I was £12 in credit. but what I didn't no is they have put a missed payments on my credit file. this is low for even talk talk. I had not missed 1 payment in 13months. 


I hope you got all of that in writing !


That will make it easy to explain to your mortgage provider.


If it does go on your credit report, add a notice of correction as soon as you can, making sure you cover all the major reference agencies.

Hi stebay


Best advice would be follow our complaints process and have a complaint manager investigate this.
